What is GNG Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision surgery is considered when the first rhinoplasty procedure wasn’t satisfactory or there is a problem with the implant that was inserted. At GNG, nose types are divided into categories to provide customized surgery plans for each patient to achieve greater satisfaction and results.

Revision surgery is more complex than primary surgery so it is vital that you get revision rhinoplasty done at a hospital with ENT specialists who have vast experience in rhinoplasty and knowledge in nasal structure to avoid another unsuccessful surgery

Nose types are divided into categories and procedures are then performed.
Even complex and difficult cases are doable.
